17. Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular?

18. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

19. It is hard to understand how a cemetery can raise its burial costs

and blame it on the higher cost of living.

25. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

26. The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by

those who got there first.

29. The shin bone is a device for finding furniture.

30. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.
